Project Title

Midwest Openflow Crossroads Initiative (MOXI)

Technical Contacts

PI: Jon-Paul Herron

Participating Organizations

GlobalNOC Indiana University

GPO Liaison System Engineer

GPO System Engineer: Heidi Dempsey


This project will deploy an OpenFlow substrate in the Midwest to enable GENI OpenFlow access in 6 Regional Optical Networks (RONs) along with additional deployment at the CIC OmniPoP, located in Chicago. Indiana University will integrate the new deployments with existing NLR and Internet2 OpenFlow deployments and the GENI control framework, and provide GENI aggregate operations and user support. This project will enable collaboration with GENI rack deployment projects. MOXI deployments will be fully compliant with GENI software standards for GENI aggregates, as published at GENI Engineering Conferences. The sites will use one or more GENI Aggregate Managers controlling access to the aggregate resources. The sites will also support GENI experimenter access. The sites will support shared GENI monitoring and operations procedures and interfaces for the meso-scale infrastructure as published at GENI Engineering Conferences.
